Radici, the Italian market/cafe in the heart of Eastern Market, is set to add liquor to its menu, in connection with expanded dinner service.
The spot, at the corner 7th and C Streets SE, received ANC 6B support at Tuesday’s monthly meeting for a change in its liquor license so that it can also offer liquor for eat-in customers (craft beer & Italian wine will continue to be available to take home).
Owner Bridget Thibodeau-Sasso spoke to the ANC’s Alcohol Beverage Committee last week (after speaking with ABRA last month) explaining that Radici is planning to partner with small Italian spirits producers of spirits like limoncello, grappa, etc. as well as serve more substantial dinner entrees, such as a Sunday family lasagna dinners. Radici hopes to extend opening hours a bit longer into the evening; they are currently closing around 8 p.m. most days. This is a few hours earlier than they can actually be open legally: 11p.m. every night except Sunday, when they close at 9 p.m.
Expect to able to get an Aperol Spritz for the first time there soon.
